Lithium ion vs Lithium polymer battery: 

This battery is well known in the name of Li-ion battery. This battery is good part is that the li-ion can contain high density energy (means more power can be stored). Also it is cheaper than lithium polymer battery. Li-ion batteries also have a history of explosions.

In the opposite site, lithium polymer battery is well known in the name Li Po battery.These batteries are generally robust and flexible, especially when it comes to the size and shape of their build. But this is very costly and not capable of high battery density.

Now in term of Power bank both the battery has pros and cons when we compare together.

What is power bank mAh

mAh is the power indicator of power house like power bank. The abbreviation mAh stands for milliamps per hour that indicates how long the power bank can deliver a certain amount of current (mA). A standard charger adapter with an android mobile has the output of 1000 mAh that means an android mobile with a battery capacity of 1000 mAh can be charged ten times with a 10000 mAh power bank.

  1. What does the capacity of the power banks tell us?

Power banks are available in diverse shapes, sizes, and the mAh figure of the device speaks about the total capacity of batteries of the devices. This means, the more the mAh power bank, the more is the energy of it. For example, iPhone 6 plus has the battery capacity of 2915 mAh, so if one desires to charge it fully then the power bank that is going to be used for the purpose should have a larger capacity that the phone.

  1. Are all the power banks capable of charging laptops?

No, all the power banks cannot charge laptops. The reason is almost all the power banks available in the market have only 5V USB output which is not enough to charge the laptops. For charging laptops, a power bank must have 16V to 20V USB output depending on the specifications of the laptops. Only a few power bank models have the ability to charge laptops.

  1. What is the lifespan of a power bank?

Lithium-ion, incorporating lithium-polymer batteries that are used in the power banks and the smartphones ultimately lose the capacities with time. The bigger is the battery, the lesser the number of cycles needed for charging it and the longer will be the lifespan of it. The batteries of the smartphones get discharged everyday which proves that the batteries of these phones have a shorter lifetime than the power banks with larger capacities.

  1. Why few power bank models take a longer time to charge?

Most of the power bank models can be recharged with only USB, and based on the power bank’s capacity, it can also take almost forty hours to get fully charged. For quicker charging, one must have a power bank with more than 5V input voltage that normally needs to be charged directly from any wall socket with the AC charger.

  1. What is the fastest way to charge a smartphone besides saving more energy?

Some of the smartphones may automatically download the updates and consume more power when the charger is connected to it. If one really wants to save more energy when the phone is getting charged from the power ban, it will be great if the phone is kept in the flight mode. This will allow charging the battery cell only by using the essential traits on the operating system of the smartphone.

Some of the mobile phone models have a sluggish charging mode in the PC connection and a rapid charging mode in the power supply connection. If one notices the differences in the speed of charging between the PC connection and the AC charger, consider which one of the two speeds is provided by the power bank bought. Be it the online store or the market shop, choose the Best Power Bank for your mobile.
